Review

There’s surely more to this gentle slapstick comedy, from Pramface writer Chris Reddy, than meets the eye. Three clueless community support officers accidentally choke a blind man’s guide dog with a prawn sandwich, and then go to increasingly desperate lengths to convince him his pet is still alive.

As the hints stack up, it soon becomes clear this must be a clever allegory of society; with the infighting officers perhaps symbolising the main political parties, the dog cast as the man’s freedom and the sandwich (prawns are posh, remember) representing economic forces. Of course, it could just be a silly farce about a dead dog, but with Vic Reeves involved…
